The Weekend Series: southern vibes – snack, sip and swim your way through Coolangatta

Let's go south, way south, to the most southern suburb on the Gold Coast – Coolangatta. Affectionately known as 'Cooly', this laid-back hub is where Gold Coast locals go to chill – it's not as fast-paced as nearby locales like Palm Beach but it's full of personality. Of late, Coolangatta has flourished with restaurateurs and retailers honing in on the seaside suburb's unique vibe, but despite it's progression, this little pocket has managed to retain its village charm. If you haven't hit up Cooly for a while, then consider this a gentle nudge – here's what to eat, see and do in Coolangatta (and the surrounds) this summer. more
